ABSTRACTObjective: Evaluate the complications and short term sucess rate of the transobturator tape for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
Material and methods: It is a retrospective study of the transobturator tapes perform in 2005 and 2006. All the procedures were done with epidural anesthesia. The sucess rate, the inmediate, short-term and long term complications were recorded at the first, second and third year.
Results: 28 women were included in the study, 54% of them with stress urinary incontinence. 25% were solely transobturator procedures. Among the complications were 2 vesical puntures, 1 periurethral fascia trauma and 5 urinary retention during the first 24 hours. In the 1 and 2 year follow-up were 2 cases of overactive detrusor. Objective sucess was 90% and subjective sucess was 92%.
Conclusions: Transobturator tape is a highly successful and a low morbility procedure.
